Our research group is interested in developing novel optical techniques to analyze model and biological samples. Currently, our interests include achieving early stage cancer detection with multiplexed biosensors, characterizing biological samples to determine lipid membrane dynamics, and implementing inexpensive point-of-care diagnostics.
